19 May Indian Engagement Session in Sausalito – Sunit & Priti

Every couple has a place and time in their memory of how they met and what they did together for the first time together. Sunit took Priti on their first date to Scoma’s restaurant in Sausalito for a delicious dinner and their love story started from there. I’ve photographed at Sausalito before but this time it was super special as I saw the connection of this couple to many of the places we would stop and shoot at. ...

04 Feb Short Wedding Film at Willow Heights Mansion – Nick & Viktoria

From the moment we arrived, we sensed that we are in one of the world's most enchanting settings - Léal Vineyards at Willow Heights Mansion. Nestled in the western hills of Santa Clara County California, the wedding of Nick and Viktoria was beautiful and majestic. This was a Willow Heights Mansion Wedding and we were honored to be there capturing a story of a couple that met on a blind date and getting married on their anniversary of that date.Through out the wedding day, we had many pleasant interactions with the beautiful couple and their wedding guests. That allowed us to be part of the wedding and capture the Willow Heights Mansion atmosphere, the Leal Vineyards, the rolling hills, and of course the wedding itself in all of it's glory. As a wedding cinematographer, I loved filming/watching the bride enter the ceremony with the veil flowing in the wind and the groom smiling - this gave me some amazing shots. Their First Dance started slow, but quickly picked up pace to include the rest of the wedding party. Enjoy the wedding film of Nick and Viktoria....

01 Feb Classic Indian Engagement Photography – Pardeep & Lovepreet

This Indian Engagement Photography session looks like it's straight out of an Indian movie. Gorgeous colors and outfits and the perfect mix of candid, posed and even glamour photos. The couple, from the Bay Area, wanted me to capture engagement photos with an unique classic Indian look. I took on that challenge and I think we pulled it off perfectly.We chose San Francisco, California for our location as it has a few of my favorite spots and also a great variety of scenery to work with. In these photos, you will see both nature and city photos. We planned for 4 different shoot ideas: a classic Indian look, a casual look with balloons, a romantic scene with props and a glamour shoot to finish off the day.I'm sure you will enjoy this Indian Engagement Session and you'll find it as the perfect inspiration for your own engagement photos....

10 Jan Sikh Same Day Edit – Davinder & Harpreet

I have been filming weddings for over a decade now but you wouldn't believe the jitters I get the morning before filming a wedding. I still wake up before each wedding nervous and anxious. But, that excitement is even heightened when we plan a complex Same Day Edit that requires our team to be on our toes every second to catch exactly the right moments that will be included in that edit. It's a film that is still in the editing process 15 minutes before "show-time" but we challenge ourselves to include moment like the Grand Entrance and First Dance into the Same Day Edit and show our masterpiece just minutes after it happens. Those 15 minutes are stressful but rewarding when we see the couple thrilled and captivated by what we managed to capture. It's a humbling and rewarding experience for us but more importantly, the bride and groom love seeing the highlights of their day just moments after they occur. See why they loved it! Additionally, there is a deeper look of what goes into filming and editing this Indian Same Day Edit....

18 Sep Short Wedding Film at Vine Hill House – Tom & Shelbi

We loved being part of a wedding that takes place in one of the worlds more romantic places - Sonoma County, more specifically, Vine Hill House. The wedding was beautiful and we loved telling Tom and Shelbi's wedding story. We take Sonoma County Wedding Videography to another level.We love filming. Period. Additionally, we like to bring tools to each wedding that are not necessarily part of the wedding cinematography package. We want to tell an amazing wedding story, and many times, it requires thinking outside the box - we have to be wedding film makers. Drone shots allow us to capture footage that is breath taking from the sky. Jib/Crane shots allow us to show the venue and other aspect of the wedding decoration in a way that is more cinematic and beautiful. Besides all the typical tools like tripods and glide-cam, we are able to create shots on another level that many other wedding videography companies will try to compete with. We love setting the bar high and I believe that this wedding video sets the bar pretty high. Capturing the wedding is not the end of the process. We love telling the story with out edits. It is as important to be a good wedding videographer as well as a really good editor. It doesn't matter what software you edit in (we use Final Cut Pro X - FCPX), but it matters how we put the story together. I believe that our editing is as strong and in tandem with our filming. That allows our end product, a cinematic wedding film, to be beautiful, emotional and heartfelt. A true priceless memory for the bride and groom. Enjoy this wedding short film....

18 Aug Indian Wedding Short Film at Greengate Ranch – Ricky & Preeti

When we arrived at Green Gate Ranch and started filming - we knew that the next 4 days would be a blast. The beautiful couple was full of energy, smiling and enjoying their wedding days. We loved becoming part of the family for a few days to capture the story of Ricky and Preeti! Behind the scenes, working as a cinematographer on this 18 hour wedding day, it was not all fun and games. Even though the wedding was beautiful and fun, it honestly pushed the limits of our team - physically, creatively and emotionally. Some weddings, a beginner can film them (they are simply easy). But this wedding, you had to be a true professional to pull off great footage. I'm a proud that our team did just that. We communicated all day on long range walkie-talkies (this was super important), walked/ran about 9 miles (my fitness tracker can prove that), and best of all, we captured some beautiful footage!...

We travelled to San Diego, back to Sacramento and finally back to San Diego to finish of their wedding reception with a Same Day Edit. It was really a blast and a challenging experience....

23 Jan Vijay & Deepa – Same Day Edit

This is literally hot off the press. We just premiered it a few hours ago at the wedding reception a few minutes after their GRAND entrance. We literally had a few minutes to edit the grand entrance and the first dance into the same day edit before we had to show it. It was pretty amazing to have a team that was able to pull this off....

24 Oct Amer & Ozma – Wedding Weekend

Los Angeles is usually a vacation spot for most people in December. For us it was more than a vacation. We got to travel with our team to Huntington Beach to film and photograph a beautiful four day Pakistani wedding. Photographing such a gorgeous and fun couple definitely felt like we were on vacation rather than working. Enjoy the beautiful moments I captured....

13 Oct Paramveer & Raman – Same Day Edit

Along with other cultures and religions, we have been filming a lot of Indian weddings lately. One of the most popular products that we have been producing is the Same Day Edit video. It is something the bride and groom anxiously wait for and the guests love watching a video that highlights and shows the story of a complete 5-day Indian wedding. It is definitely a stressful challenge and takes a lot of time, effort, and a great team. We at Aperina Studios are never afraid of challenges and so we again took on the challenge to produce another unique Same Day Edit video for our beautiful couple. Even though we have produced many SDE videos, we always try to make each one unique and tell the original story of each couple's wedding weekend. Here is what we saw through our lens while filming the beautiful wedding of Paramveer and Raman.The bride couldn't stop smiling while watching the video during the wedding reception, we hope you love it as much as she did. Enjoy this Indian Wedding Same Day Edit....
